(How to Prevent) Death by Beadledom

If you a) are alive and b) have a job, it's likely that you have or will find yourself working in or dealing with a bureaucracy. Oh, the joys of being an adult! It is said that an efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty that we know. It is increasingly clear that the fate of the universe will come to depend more and more on individuals like you - slayers of bureaucracy - as the this dark force slowly permeates every corner of our existence. We have no other choice but to do something about it. This session will not only provide you with a survival guide to keep yourself alive when beadledom is near but it will also equip you with a strategic plan to cut through the red tape and slay the ugliest of dragons.
The future of all humanity and the end of the world is at stake. We need your help.
